T WAS just an ordinary day for others, but for us it was an epoch in our 
lives, that September day when we first arrived in Ellendale. 

We hardly recognize in the lofty, dignified and self-possessed Seniors 
of 1 916 the timid, awed, awkward, shrinking "Freshies" that entered the 
School. 

After a year's work however this timidity and newness began to wear 

off and we became prominent in the school activities. A large number 

entered the various organizations of the N. I., which fact probably accounts for part of 

the prominence of these organizations in school affairs. How could they be otherwise than 

successful with such powerful motive force within their ranks? 

It must be admitted that we were not always given our rightful place in school life 
until our Junior year. Then the student body looked to us for advice and we naturally 
became leaders. Some of our members were in "The Chocolate Soldier" given as a 
number of our Lecture Course. One of our group was chosen for the Y. W. C. A. 
president, also several more of the girls were chosen for the Cabinet. The second place 
on the declamation contest was won by one of our classmates. In the spring we out did all 
other classes in entertaining the Seniors, and we feel that we did justice to the occasion. 
At last our senior year arrived — the year we had been looking forward to thru all 
our former years of work. Several entered our class from other schools at this time, and 
a few graduates returned, all of whom we were glad to welcome. These, recognizing 
the honor attached to N. I.'s diploma and the glory of the class of 19 16, have made 
loyal members of our ranks. We are especially honored by having in our midst, one who 
is a faculty member. We had our first class meeting near the beginning of the year, and 
chose Everett Thrams president, as he was one whom we felt we could depend upon to 
lead us over the difficulties which must surely appear. 

This year again finds the members of the class prominent in various school organi- 
zations and activities. Judging from the vigor and vim displayed in the past, we are 
confident that honor and glory will come to the class of 1916.

HREE Years ago the State Normal Industrial School had an exceptionally 
clever Freshman class. This was evident the following year as well, for 
as Sophomores they were famous for their wisdom, worldly and otherwise. 
The faculty declared that such a truly remarkable class had not been known 
to them for years. Not only in intellect, but in grace and beauty did 
they excell, — as witness, our president ! This same talented aggregation is 
is now the Junior Class. In all lines of social activity they are to be 
found, and though "few in numbers they are great in spirit." 

In every organization which has experienced any degree of success you will find 
that to the class of 191 7 is most credit due. In Athletics, Literary Societies, Musical 
Organizations and School Activities of all kinds you will find the Juniors pushing to 
the front. 

In short many and various are the talents to be found in this unusual class. They 
have much over which to be gratified. They are proud to respect the faculty, to revere 
their Alma Mater, and to be the "parents" of this book. 
Long life to the Class of 191 7.

President — W. F. Wheeler 
Historian — Andy Hultstrand 

T WAS in the fall of 191 5, when the days were growing shorter, clear and 
frosty. In various homes throughout the land the young people who were 
to have the great honor of organizing the class of 1918 began to get down 
their old trunks from the attic and in them pack away the many articles 
needed in the great whirl of school life. Some came from our sister states 



but most of them are from dear old North Dakota. 

The boys you will find unusually industrious. Some of them are doing 
considerable extra work, especially in the Mechanic Arts Department, hoping 
thereby to complete their course in less time than it would ordinarily take. Some are 
found in athletics. In football they played a very important part, in basketball they 
have not as yet met defeat from any of the other class teams. When the baseball season 
opens you will find the sturdy, ambitious sophomores ready and willing to do their part 
in making the "Old N. I" a victorious school this season. 

Among the sophomore girls are those gifted with a talent for writing poetry, and 
some are interested in music, while others are contented to pursue the important study 
of Domestic Science. 

The present Sophomores are eagerly looking forward to their graduation, when 
they shall be both able and willing to assume more of the cares and responsibilities of a 
bigger and better life.

HE Class of 1 9 19 is no ordinary class, but as yet we are not well enough 
established to have much of a history to record. Time is all that we ask 
for, however, and then some day we shall occupy the much coveted seats 
of the Seniors who have long passed the "persimmon state" in which we 
now find ourselves. But there is one consolation in being green, for all 
green things grow. As verdant as we may look we have never been known 
to buy chapel seats or last year's dance tickets, as it is whispered our illustrious predeces- 
sors have done. Therefore we are living in hope. 

Taken as a whole, we lay claim to originality, and as each one voices his opinion 
we find that there is much personality as well as originality in this very extraordinary 
class. We have gathered here from all points of the compass — north, east, south and 
west — to obtain knowledge. All parts of North Dakota are represented in this class, 
as are also South Dakota, Minnesota, Montana and even Canada. 

In the month of June we shall all return to our homes singing N. I. praises to all 
whom we meet and thus show our appreciations of this wonderful institution of learning 
For all our faithful labor here we shall some day be fully rewarded by finding ourselves 
at the top of the ladder. Then it will be our turn to look condescendingly down and 
pity other poor timid Freshmen who will have taken our places. 

This is all prophecy, however. As yet we consider ourselves mere flourishing sprouts 
in this great garden of learning. 

— By One of the "Sprouts."

Tlie AIidMehi Litera 




Organized 1906 — Miss Carolyn Evens (Mrs. W. M. Kern) 
Re-Organized 19 10 — Miss Gabriella C. Brendemuhl 

HIS year the Alphian Literary Society will celebrate the tenth anniversary 
of its founding. From a humble beginning the society has grown in 
numbers and power to its present strength. Like other organizations it 
has experienced dark days and discouragment, but by determined effort 
it has gained a firm foothold in the life of the school. 

But the real strength of a literary society cannot be estimated in numbers. 
The character of the work done is the determining factor. The watchword of the Alphians 
is faithful preparation and their creed, constant effort, not only along the particular line 
in which the individual members easily excell, but along many lines. The Alphians 
aim to make each effort their best effort and thus more nearly approach their goal of 
confidence and poise. Closeness of organization, frequency and regularity of carefully 
planned programs and painstaking effort — all aid in building up the society. 

Social meetings during the school year and a Chapter reunion each June strengthen 
the ties of friendship between active and graduate members and promote the general 
feeling of loyalty to the school. 

May many more years be added to the life of the Alphian Literary Society, each 
one full of glad success in work well done and power acquired ! 
"Not failure, but low aim is crime."

dgiraia Pi Iota Literary Society 

President — Mr. R. J. Gamble 

Vice President — Mr. Ralph Oertli 

Secretary-Treasurer — Mr. Wilbur Wheeler 

Critics — Professors Ackert-Fuller 

Historian — Mr. W. Ashton Gamble 

S the wings of Time flit on through the ages upon them once more is chronicled 
the eventful history of the Sigma Pi Iota. 

According to legendary tablets of the past, there came to "Carnegie" 
in the year 1907 one who foresaw, as did the Roman seers of old, the 
great place that rhetorical work might occupy in our education. To 
Professor Bowers, who worked so assiduously with the S. P. I. in its infancy, and who 
so ably fostered that little spark of literary genius then under his guidance and direction, 
is due the strength and eminence of the society at the present writing. Nine long and 
successful years have served to place this organization among the foremost of the student 
activities in the State Normal and Industrial School. 

Its Greek cognomen, "Sigma Pi Iota," since time immemorial, had rested in the 
great Grecian archives of Mythology; but, in the year 1907 the mystic letters were incor- 
porated in our constitution as the name of this notable body. 

In speaking of our presidents, we regret to say, that space forbids penning an 
individual tribute to the memory of the many illustrous potentates who have so successfully 
held the executive reins; but suffice to say, that with President R. J. Gamble, under 
whose able guidance the society now flourishes, the entire number of presidents has 
reached the total of one score. 

The aims of the Sigma Pi Iota are far reaching and manifold. Of course primarily, 
they are to give the students facility in public speaking, both argumentative and 
oratorical. Debating, coincident with parliamentary law, is the great forte of the society. 
This organization holds, as did the ancient rhetoricion, Demosthenes, that public speaking 
is an acquired art, and in its acquisition, places emphasis especially upon propriety, pre- 
cision, perspicuity, power and eloquence in public expression. 

This organization always has the best of supervision, under the combined direction 
of Professors Ackert and Fuller, who serve alternately as critics. Under their helpful 
guidance the literary work is much stimulated and is thus raised to a much higher standard 
of excellence. 

The society has at present a membership of thirty-five and the number will continue 
to increase as the students are made to feel the helpfulness and benefits derived from 
literary training. 

Knowing what has been accomplished in the past, and feeling its influence in the 
present we are confident that no "Delphic Oracle" is needed to predict a future of splendid 
achievements for this society. The Sigma Pi Iota serves as an incentive to mental life 
and action ; and must ultimately lead to greater literary advancement. May we ever 
strive to emulate our past literary efforts, and may our successes be so many that the 
symbols, "S. P. I." will be emblazoned forever upon our memories!

istory of the Mechanic Arts Society 




N the year 19 12, during the winter term, Mr. Fields provided a system of 
discussions, debates and lectures for the benefit of the short course students. 
These meetings were held every week in the lecture room of the Mechanic 
Arts building. The result of this was the beginning of the Mechanic 
Arts Society. 

The germ lay dormant for nearly a year. In 1913 the work was again taken up, this 
time under the leadership of Mr. Dunphy, who extended the eligibility of membership to 
all male students of the school. On February 12 the first meeting was held. It was 
conducted systematically, and was marked with memorable formalities. A constitution 
was drawn up and unanimously adopted, amendments to it having since been made. 

After its organization the society immediately came to the front, and was soon 
recognized by the other school organizations as one of the strongest societies in the 
school, one which contributes essentially to the maintenance and advancement of the 
industrial phase of this institution. It is the only society which represents the true 
character of the school. Whenever necessary, it makes investigations into various subjects 
of universal interest, co-operates with the other societies, contributes yearly to the 
interscholastic debating teams, and holds itself responsible for its share of the school's 
debating ability. 

On February 12, 191 3 the society was organized with fifteen members present. Its 
membership steadily increased until now the enrollment has reached forty-five. Five men 
have occupied the chief executive chair, Cleve Malin being the first. He has been 
succeeded by Clyde McCormick, Jay Harm, Harold Zieman and John Dawe, respectively. 

The programs usually consist of debates, discussions and illustrated lectures. "Feeds" 
are enjoyed at least once each term. 

No society in the school offers such a great diversity of opportunities for the young 
men of the manual training department as does the Mechanic Arts Society. It is one of the 
most promising societies in the institution, and teeming with possibilities. Thus its past 
achievements bid fair to future progress.

HE Young Men's Christian Association has a strong organization, with a 
membership of over fifty. This society makes it a point to meet all the 
new students at the trains, and to help these new students to enroll and 
to find suitable rooming and boarding places. A stag party is planned 
sometime during the first or second week of school, where the new men 
make the acquaintances of the older ones. At these parties games and contests of various 
kinds furnish entertainment for all. 

This organization holds a regular meeting every Wednesday evening. To these 
meetings all young men of the school are cordially invited. The leaders of the meetings 
are selected from the student and faculty members and occasionally from the leading 
business and professional men of the city. Four of the men have organized themselves 
a quartette and often furnish special music. Joint meetings are sometimes held with the 
Young Women's Christian Association. This has proven very successful for both societies. 
The aim of this society is "character building." With this in view the older members 
devote much of their time to keeping in close touch with all the new men of the school. 
Yes, these active "Y" boys are willing to help any one in the hour of distress and grief. 
Each year the association sends men to conventions and conferences and in that way 
keeps in touch with other Young Men's Christian organizations.

HE Young Women's Christian Association stands for everything that is high, 

true, noble and good in the lives of the students. The main purpose of 

the association is to bring young women into closer touch with God. 

However, the members find time to show many kindnesses .to others and 

especially to the new students. A special committee meets all new girls 

at the trains. 

The regular devotional meetings held every Wednesday evening are led by the 

members themselves, tho frequently outside speakers are invited. Social life in the 

school is promoted by the association thru a series of receptions, parties, and 

entertainments. 

The Association aims to send at least one delegate to the Annual Student Conference 
at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. It is a great inspiration to the delegate to know that 
thousands of splendid young women are really giving first place to religious things. 
Students are beginning to realize more and more that religion is essential to a fully 
developed individual. 

Our association workers are active and loyal. We feel that the Young Women's 
Christian Association has played an important part in maintaining the moral atmosphere 
of the school.

ihunlbertt Glee Clualbs 



Choral Director — Miss Alpha Holte 
Pianists — Misses Howel and Boom 
Historian — Mr. W. Ashton Gamble 




HE Orpheus and Shubert Glee Clubs were organized in the fall of 191 3. 
These voluntary organizations offer unusual musical advantages to all young 
people of the school. 

Music has its just mission in every human life. It, like no other art, 
touches the very soul of man, awakens beautiful memories, and couches his 
feelings in the language of repose and harmony. Music lends enchantment 
to our lives ; for in it we become lost in silent reverie, and gently float away into a 
realm of mystery and wonderment. While here, basking in its mellowy strains, we 
rehearse our joys and sorrows, the victories, defeats, longings, exultations and depressions 
of our lives. Music is not only for those who glory in it as an accomplishment, but it is 
interwoven with the life, thought and emotions of all nations. Music, not "esperanto", 
is truly the universal language. To teach how to use and understand this language has 
been the Glee Club's purpose. 

From the days of their infancy, under the direction of Mr. Jacob Schutz, these 
organizations have achieved success. 

The first debut of any note was the rendition of the operetta "Sylvia". This was a 
grand success, and added a decided musical distinction to the State Normal and Industrial 
School. 

In the following year, 19 14, the glee clubs appeared in the famous operetta "Bulbul". 

The next year, 191 5, the music department was under the supervision of the Misses 
Holte and Howell. "The Chocolate Soldier," the first operatta given under their com- 
bined direction, together with Miss Olson as instructor in public expression, served to 
reveal the power and possibilities of our clubs and directors. 

This season, 191 6, the glee clubs are busy rehearsing for "The Bo'sn's Bride." This 
has surpassed all efforts of the past. 

The glee clubs not only participate in the annual school operettas, but also appear in 
recitals, take part on special occasions ; and render selections for commencement week. 

The Orpheus and Shubert Glee Clubs have laid their foundations well, and if their 
future career can be judged by their past success they will become — what they now 
promise to be — important factors in the musical life of our state institution.

CAN truthfully say that the 191 5 
squad was the best I have ever 
worked with. The boys from the 
Captain down to the lowest sub. 
were good workers, eager to learn 
and anxious to put into practice what they 
learned. 

We were greatly handicapped in the first 
game because some of the boys were late in 
entering school and by the fact that we had no 
game to get us ready for Wahpeton. However 
we gave a good account of ourselves and made 
them work for their thirteen points, and only 
breaks of the game prevented us from scoring 
as many. 
Four days later we met Valley City, and the team, showing an improvement of 
one hundred per cent, triumphed over them by the score of 26 to o. 

In a week and a half we met Jamestown College. We arrived in Jamestown late in 
the afternoon and the last half of the game was played in the dark. They gave us credit, 
however, of giving them the best game of the season in Jamestown and we were much 
pleased with the fact that we scored the last touchdown. 

One week later we met and defeated Aberdeen for the first time in the history of 
the two schools. Without any other successes, that would probably have made the season 
a successful one. 

However, I believe that every man on the squad derived pronounced benefits from 
the 191 5 season. One thing remarked about by many was their condition. They were 
always better at the end of the game than their opponents. This was due to the fact that 
the boys took good care of themselves, and that we had a faithful second team to work 
against. 

In this school the second squad gets less credit than they deserve. The only remun- 
eration they get is the fun and experience which is necessary for the first team of the 
future. Their work is appreciated, however, by the first team and myself. Others who 
helped to make this season a success were Mr. Dewey, as coach of the second team, and 

Herbert Pease, trainer.

Bottom Row — Lee, R. F., Brown, C. F., Comstock, L. F., Morgans, R. F. 




HE base ball team of 191 5 might well be classed as an "in and out" team, 
because at times the team played sensational ball and at others their ability 
was below mediocre. 

Their real ability was well demonstrated in the decisive victories over 
Valley City, Wahpeton and the University of South Dakota as well as in 
the 3 to 1 loss to Jamestown. 

The team possessed an able pitcher in Strutz, Captain elect for 19 16, a good infield in 
McGraw, Koch, Sauer and Carpenter. Brown, Lee, Comstock and Morgans looked after 
the outfield, while Ashley for a new man caught some excellent games. Skaar as a relief 
pitcher did creditable work, and Judkins caught the early games in his usual snappy 
manner. Koch was the leading infielder, and Brown led over the other outfielders. 
Several of last year's team are back, and with new material usually available, we hope to 
make as good or better showing this season.

Basket Ball 




Mayvi 



HE basket ball season of 19 16 was one of satisfaction and disappointment. 
Satisfaction because a good team was developed out of very light material, 
and disappointment because the team in its final games failed to live up to 
its midseason promise. 

In the games against Huron, Sioux Falls, Aberdeen, Jamestown and 
. team displayed excellent team work and basket shooting ability, but 



in the final games the team showed a marked reversal of form. This was probably due to 
the fact that the games were all hard ones, that the schedule was heavy and the games 
badly bunched. 

THE TEAM 

Pease and Carpenter, our diminutive forwards, were exceptionally fast, and good at 
shooting baskets from any angle. Pease by his excellent work this season has been chosen 
as Captain for next year; and Carpenter, this year's Captain who is a Senior, will be lost 
to the team after this season. 

The Brown Brothers held down the guard positions splendidly. Floyd was excep- 
tionally good in breaking up plays and was also a good basket shooter. This is George's 
first year as a member of the team and he showed up remarkably well. 

Fleming, at center, displayed good form, and the work of Farrel and Geer as for- 
wards was very satisfactory. 

Coach Swetland is to be congratulated on the good showing made by the boys this 
season.

Company A 



Military Company 




HE military company of this school is an organization which strikes the key 
note of the spirit of the age. It is a factor which plays a very important 
part of the boy's education in this institution. 

It is required by an act of legislature to give theoretical and practical 
instruction in military science, and the company organized and drilled is 
subject to regular inspection by the Adjutant General of the state. 

The cadet battalion with the commandant Professor J. E. Swetland, under whose 
supervision the company is regulated, at present comprises one cadet captain, one cadet 
first lieutenant, one cadet second lieutenant, three sergeants, one color sergeant, four 
corporals, one musician and thirty privates. 

Up till a few years ago only one company was maintained, designated as Company 
A, but during the winter term another company is organized principally for the short 
course students. This is known as Company B. During the short period of three months 
this company makes remarkable progress. 

At the close of each winter term the two companies are inspected. On the same 
occasion a contest takes place. To this contest all members are eligible. Prizes are 
awarded to individuals and to the squad showing the greatest military skill. A squad of 
of the best drillers of the company is selected. Any member of either company in this 
squad is eligible to an individual prize. The person showing superior military merit is 
awarded first prize; the next best receives second prize. These prizes consist of silver 
and bronze medals. The prize winning squad is awarded a streamer. 

The commissioned officers of 191 5 and 191 6 were: Captain Arthur Strutz, First 
Lieutenant Stanley Fleming and Second Lieutenant Paul Rehberg. The non-commis- 
sioned officers were: First Sergeant Charles Blumer, Second Sergeant Ceryl Black, Third 
Sergeant Ira Morgans, First Corporal Oscar Anderson, Second Corporal Andrew Hult- 
strand, Third Corporal Ralph Oertli, and Fourth Corporal Charles Smith. 

Those winning individual prizes were: Frank Callan, first prize, and Fred Smith- 
Peterson, second prize; while First Sergeant Blumer's squad was awarded the streamer,

The Halloween Party 

VERY delightful event of the school year was the Hallowe'en Party which 

was given in the Armory. Everybody came dressed as witches, ghosts, etc. 

The evening was spent in various ways, such as shooting for apples, the 

telling of fortunes, and trips through "The Chamber of Horrors." Another 

entertaining picture of the evening was a unique program consisting of original stunts, 

amusing pantomines, and charades representing famous characters in history and 

literature. 

A rush for partners ensued to enjoy the delightful Hallowe'en lunch prepared and 
served by the young ladies of the Domestic Science department. 

At the close of the evening's fun the large number in attendance unanimously 
pronounced this one of the most delightful of school parties.

A Narrow Escape 

It was an electric chandelier, 
And it struck but one of three 
Squarely upon his milk white dome 
Where his hair had ought to be. 

It pierced his scalp at one fell stroke, 
The blood did freely flow ; 
He thought at first his head was broke, 
'Twas such a mighty blow. 

It was our worthy president 
Who thus profusely bled ; 
An incandescent bulb, it seems, 
Had fallen on his head. 

It happened in a railroad coach, 
As he returned from "Chi" ; 
The porter apprehended that 
Our president might die. 

The "Con" likewise felt deep concern, 
And a surgeon soon did call, 
Who dressed the damaged pate and said, 
"There's nothing in it at all." 

Oh Prexy wise, we do advise 

Lest greater harm be did, 

When next you roam so far from home. 

'Twere well to wear a lid. 



Ten Commandments 

I. Thou shalt not miss thy eight o'clock class, neither shalt thou skip drill or 
chapel. 

II. Thou shalt not make unto thee a crib for the purpose of obtaining a high mark 
in exams. 

III. Thou shalt not make any unnecessary noises during thy vacant periods for 
thou art liable to become a member of the "awkward squad." 

IV. Remember the chapel exercises and be quiet, three hours thou shalt labor and 
do all thy work, but the chapel period is the President's time to reprove the students. 

V. Honor thy faculty and President, that thy days in the land of the N. I. may 
be long and happy. 

VI. Thou shalt not shout in the hall. 

VII. Thou shalt not "spoon" during school hours. 

VIII. Thou shalt not open another student's locker and take that which does not 
belong to thee. 

IX. Thou shalt not bear any grudge against any members of the faculty. 

X. Thou shalt not play jokes in Chapel on April Fool's day.

interpretation 
adlise Lost 




UCIFER, popularly known as Satan, tried to doctor the returns after a red 
hot campaign in the heavenly city, and was caught in the act by Jess Wil- 
lard, James Jeffries, and Frank Gotch. He was taken to the gate and 
thrown out across the river Jordan, and yanked into infinite and ethereal 
space. According to authentic reports he dropped into Hell after a little 
jaunt of nine days and nine nights through the atmosphere. After arriving there and being 
greeted by a delegation of prominent citizens led by Jack Johnson, "the big cinder," he 
threw his hat into the ring and declared that he would rather be Kaiser down there than 
a defeated candidate up in Heaven. This remark brought a storm of applause from the 
audience, and at the conclusion of his speech he was encored by the large crowd. Then 
the meeting was dispersed after singing the national hymn, "He's a Devil in His Own 
Home Town," and the popular anthem, "Stay Down Here Where You Belong." Satan is 
still holding down his job at a fat salary. People who visit the city unite in saying it is a 
red hot town with plenty of excitement and gnashing of teeth. No matter how much 
people dislike his Satanic Majesty they object to criticizing his methods. Few newspapers 
dare to insinuate that his town needs a moral cleanup, and whenever the place is men- 
tioned at all it is generally summed up in a short paragraph warning all summer resort 
seekers to keep away from the Brimstone Lake, as the beach is infested with sharks. And 
as for fishing, the Jordan invites you, where all nature combines to make your stay, one 
long to be remembered.

Wattehfal Waiting 



a °>°> 



Once upon a dark day dreary, 
As we sat there, Oh, so weary 
In that gloomy English cell 
As we sat there wildly gaping 
Gaping for that chapel bell 
Suddenly there came a rapping 
But twas only scholars tapping 
As they passed that English door 
Only this and nothing more. 

Faces sad and worn and pale 

Tell the same undying tale 

That the teacher still was cramming 

Knowledge into dull heads ramming 

While the doors above were slamming 

And we waited for the bell. 

Not a syllable we uttered 

Not a sigh but what we smothered 

Caged within that cold and lonely cell. 

Surely it was shameful sin 

For the scholar thus to grin. 

Presently his tone grew stronger 

Hesitating then no longer 

"Teacher" said he, "Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore, 

But the fact is you were rapping 

While the bells came lightly tapping 

And upstairs they now are clapping" 
Quoth the teacher, "Forever more!" 

But the time was quickly fleeting 

While the scholar thus was speaking 

Still the teacher to our sorrow 

Planned long lessons for the morrow 

And the bell we waited for. 

But the silence was unbroken 

And the stillness gave no token 

Save, "Class dismissed," full quickly spoken 

Only this and nothing more. 



Ah, tis easy to remember 
How chill fear smote every member 
As they tiptoed up the stairway 
And stood tardy in the hallway 
Ere they reached the Chapel door. 
There sat Prexy gravely gazing 
With disappointed look amazing 
And his eye with wonder blazing 
While he conned all reasons o'er. 

PAGE 86 



Suddenly his eye did brighten 

With glad hope his face did lighten 

As he saw them entering shyly 

And come creeping forward slyly 

Slyly at the Chapel door. 

Then the class he cautioned soundly 

And berated bells more roundly 

And made promises profoundly 

That the English bell fail NEVER MORE.

The Term Dance 




HE three term dances are among the most delightful events of the whole 

school year. For months ahead they are eagerly anticipated by those who 

trip the light fantastic and even more eagerly by those who wish to become 

acquainted with this mysterious and fascinating art. About ten days 

before the all important evening a causual observer on the walk between the "Dorm" and 

Carnegie Hall seldom sees one of the fairer sex walking without an escort. Let us 

imagine the conversation of just one of these new couples. 

"Well, hello Miss . May I carry your books for you." 

"Oh, how perfectly grand of you, Mr. — ", with a nervous laugh. 

An awkward silence follows. 

She — "Oh ! What a lovely day this is." 

He — "Yes, won't it be a fine evening for the dance?" 

She — "Whom are you taking this evening?" 

He — "Do you suppose any girl would be foolish enough to go with me?" Another 
laugh. 

She — "You're always joking. Why don't you know you could get the nicest girl 
in the Dorm?" A pause. 

Then with a happy smile, "All right, will you go with me then?" 

She feigning great surprise, "Why, Mr. I'd never dreamt of such a thing." 

He — "Well, whom did you think I'd take?" 

She — "Why, I — I — would just love to go." 

The next scene is in the armory, which is beautifully decorated. Over in one corner 
are the patrons and patronesses smiling at every one. Up in the balcony is the orchestra 
which strikes up the grand march. Then every gentleman seeks his lady fair and they are 
cff. The armory floor is gay with whirling couples. 

The dancing continues until i i 130 when the lights "wink" and strains of "Home 
Sweet Home" float upon the air. Then there is a great rush for wraps and with a final 
long drawn out sigh the happy throng depart. 

The dance is over. 

G. D. 

I love it's giddy gurgle, 

I love it's fluent flow, 
I love to wind my mouth up, 

I love to hear it go.

The Whisperer 

Do you think a prayer can faze her, 
Or a verse from Holy Writ? 
If you do you are mistaken, 
For they interrupt her not a bit. 

She whispers on regardless, 

(This whisperer is feminine, you see) 

And lost to all around her, 

She buzzes on quite merrily ! 

No chapel speech or morning song, 
Or announcement big, or brief 
Affects the flow of whispered words, 
Or brings tired ears relief! 

And do you wish her name to know? 
Her name is not legion, but several! 
If this nuisance you wish to see 
You'll find her each day in Chapel. 



To the \ 

Oh weapon most pliable, of gleaming steel, 
You make me think of a wriggling eel. 
Your coat is so shiny, your body so lithe ; 
You assume an odd shape in a manner that's blithe. 
Pretty little spatula! 

Your uses are many, your value untold ; 
You handle dough easily, both hot and cold, 
For cookies, for pastry, for pies you are handy; 
You please all the cooks from May to Mirandy. 
Happy little spatula ! 

To mold and to measure, to keep tables clean 
This knife is quite ready, 'tis easily seen. 
And should sad mischance drop a speck on the floor, 
Pick it up with a "spatty" and ask for no more. 
Handy little spatula! 

For patting and spatting and poking the fire ; 
For slapping the janitor who rouses your ire; 
For shaping and scraping and prying a nail 
You're so very convenient, so dear spatty, all hail ! 
Busy little spatula!

Buckel 



(W. A. Smith) 



How dear to my heart is this thing they call Latin 

When fond recititation presents it to view. 
The clauses, the phrases, all dressed in their satin, 

And every loved ending that makes us feel blue; 
The high sounding doo-dads and out-landish diet, 

The slave with a spear and the Roman who fell, 
The verbal gerundive, the noun crouching nigh it, 

Are hidden in Latin which I love so well. 

(Chorus) 
That time-honored Latin 
That iron-bound Latin, 
That moss-covered Latin 
Which hangs on so well. 

The subject, the verb and the bow-legged compound, 

The flexible gerund and subjunctive mood, 
The clauses of purpose encourage the pronoun 

To take the possessive and silently brood; 
The loose-jointed supine and verbal declensions 

Join hands with conjunctions and joyfully dwell 
In temporal clauses of Gothic dimensions 

And e'en in the Latin which I love so well. 

This moss covered Latin I hail as a treasure, 
Its magical value brings peace to my soul ; 

It raises old Ned with my fleet-footed leisure, 
And hurridly causes the moments to roll. 

And gladly I seize it with hands that are eager, 
In scanning its pages I dodge all the fever, 

The measels, the shingles and smallpox as well. 

I tenderly open my mind to receive it 

As poised on my table it joyfully drips; 
No hair-raising ball game could tempt me to leave it, 

Though filled with the things which America sips 
Their fuss from the diamond fills all the creation 

In tribute to home runs they noisily yell. 
I close down my window in anticipation 

And cling to my Latin which I love so well.

"Do you know Muzzy is very undecided?" 

"Did you hear that Petty let out the chickens?" 

"Did you know that John Dawe and Dick Gamble didn't play a single trick this

"Did you hear that Prof. Dewey considers April Fool's day a legal holiday and 
dismissed his M. A. V class?"

The Suindry Seven 

We are the janitors, five and two, 

Who labor for Old N. I. 
We cast our lot with the Gold and Blue 

And have little time to sigh. 

Every man of us has his very own task, 

And works all the day without guile; 

But most of our men find time to bask, 
In some fair damsel's smile. 

Then one of our number did beat even this, 

And others, I think, plan hard 
For future years just flooded with bliss; 

But alone in the cold is this bard. 

Next year at N. I. some of us will be missing, 
But "a rolling stone gathers no moss," 

Perhaps for the school it may prove quite a blessing 
To rid some of those who are ready to boss.

The Military Ball of 1916 




HE Ninth Annual Military Ball, given by the members of Company "A" took 
place in the State Normal and Industrial School gymnasium, Friday evening, 
March 24, 19 16. 

Beginning with the Ancients, the dance has flourished thru ten centuries, 
and still occupies a popular place in Modern Social life. 

It has been well said that the dance gladdens both mind and body, and that the 
animation of youth overflows spontaneously in harmonious dance movements. 

Because of these social characteristics the Military Ball, given in proper military 
setting, holds a permanent place in the social activities of the State Normal and Industrial 
School. It is the greatest social event of the year and, for this reason the Ninth Annual 
Military Ball was eagerly welcomed. 

The dancers met in the School Armory which was tastefully decorated with the 
school colors of blue and gold; and military colors of red, white and blue, across the ceiling; 
and at parallel intervals ran twisted streamers of blue and gold. The walls were neatly 
draped in folds of white crossed with a star-like arrangement of blue and gold that extended 
the entire length of the room. At one end of the armory hung the big Battalion Flag with 
the beautiful squad streamers, under which the patrons and patronesses were seated. In 
the center of the dancing area itself was a beautiful electric camp-fire structure, which, in 
all its splendor suggested the soft glow of an evening camp-fire. 

The grand march to the accompaniment of patriotic airs, was successfully lead by 
Captain Strutz and Miss Bessie Coleman, First Lieutenant Fleming with Miss Helen 
Coleman, Mr. William Gamble with Miss Cora Kabrud ; and Corporal Hultstrand with 
Miss Marian Johnson. 

After tripping the light fantastic until midnight, a dainty luncheon was served in 
the Domestic Science rooms by the young ladies of the department. Feeling much re- 
freshed the merry dancers reluctantly bade farewell, well pleased with the Military Ball 
of 1916 and the efforts of Company A.

Who ever climbed the stairs, 
Now are in the Sophomore class, 
Leaning in their chairs. 

But the very greenest pupils,

A thing worth while is a wholesome smile 
Tis a ray of sunshine and joy, 
A gleam of beauty, of hope, of wealth, 
'Tis something we all enjoy. 

A thing worth while is a kindly word, 

To lighten some heart that's sad. 

Kind words are gems in the necklace of life, 

They make the unhappy glad. 

A thing worth while is a noble deed, 
To help the discouraged along. 
Comfort the weary and those in need 
With a cheery word and a song. 

To be simple in faith, to be kind in heart, 
To meet every fate with a smile, 
To be thoughtful of others is a Christian Art, 
That teaches us things worth while.

State Normal and Industrial School 

Ellendale, North Dakota 

STRONG courses in Manual Training have always characterized this school. 
It gives both thoro industrial courses and a complete teacher's course in 
manual training; also steam and gas engineering. 
l\OT to be less thoughtful for the young women, thoro training is offered in 

cooking, sewing, household management, dressmaking and related subjects. 
A strong teacher's course is given. 

TN preparation for teaching the regular normal courses are given, training 
teachers for the public schools both in the academic and in special subjects. 
The demand for teachers far exceeds the supply. 
THHE science of agriculture is justly receiving more attention, as a field offering 

the greatest opportunity for scientific management. The S. N. I. has an 
agricultural department with demonstration plats in the school garden, and 
alfalfa, sweet clover and corn fields. 
COMMERCE is one of the great world interests. Every one should at least 

know how to keep a set of books. A good commercial course is given, pre- 
paring the student for immediate work at the office or counter, or in the bank. 
XJ ERE one can find opportunity to complete an academic course, and the 

student may elect some of the industrial subjects as a part of his study 
schedule. Classes in the common branches are maintained for those who need 
further drill in the fundamentals. 
"pVERY one has rhythm in his soul. At least that is expert opinion. This 

school aims to develop all possibilities, and offers strong courses in vocal 
and instrumental music and maintains a splendid department of fine arts. 
"D IGHT development demands attention to the physical side, and gymnasium 

exercises, physical training, track and team athletics with various forms of 
student activities tend to keep the body in health and the mind in poise. 

Would you like to know more about this practical school "of the people, by 
the people and for the people"? A copy of its annual catalog may be had for 
the asking.

But it seems to be very popular and much more appetizing than the old style 
"Welch Rarebit." Try it tonight! Pour contents of one can Campbell's 
Tomato Soup into Chafing dish or double boiler. When hot add one pound of 
cheese, cut in dice; cook until cheese is thoroughly melted and mix with soup. 
Add red pepper to taste, and one egg slightly beaten. Stir well a few minutes 
and serve hot on crackers or toast.
